Obama was in excellent form at the Debate in Los Angeles tonight, and no moment more so when he took Hillary Clinton to task about Iraq. In doing so, he not only proved her to be the spineless establishment shill that she is, not only shook her up, but took one of her most annoying lines from her.
We have often heard Hillary claim that she is a candidate who would be “ready on Day One” of becoming President.
After excoriating her record on Iraq – even getting her to nod, stunned, before she realized what she was doing when he said, “we will have a strong argument against the Republicans if we debate them saying we realized all along going into Iraq was wrong” – he told the audience this:
“It is not only important to be ready on Day One, but to be right on Day One,” speaking of Clinton’s absolute misreading of either the pre-war Iraq intelligence or the Bush administration’s intentions. That will resonate, and it is important that it does so.
It gets to the bottom of why Obama is the right choice – not just ready on day one, but right on day one.
